AB: another I'm not sure about

This was acquired as MEDINA, a Johnnye Rich intro from '86. I can't
make the description work for me here either, but it's not unusual for
me to be able to wrap my brains - wait make that 'brain' as the 's'
makes it sound too generous - around registration descriptions even when
I'm sure of the cultivar in question. Haven't seen it growing
elsewhere. I'll do a search on the net and see if I can find other
photos, but even that can be chancy. The last time I did that I came up
with quite and assortment of images and some were clearly not the same
cultivar and there was a lot of variation on those I found that were.
You had to really study them.

I think the flecks on this might be something you can disregard. In my
ABs, when you have a long, mild and WET period preceding and during
bloom you see a lot of blooms have those little flecks of concentrated
pigment. That's what I've had this year and I'm seeing those little
spots of pigmentation showing where I've never seen it before. I don't
much like it, but it happens. On the plus side of that, the colors in
the ABs are also richer and more saturated than normal. FIRE IN THE
HOLE is not very pale this year and the 'fire' in the hole simply isn't
there this year. The signal is very dark and very, very solid!

Dang! Two days without wind! I don't think that's EVER happened here
in bloom season before. So very, very nice. Everything is standing up
straight and tall that wasn't snapped off or pushed over by about 60
hours of relentless wind from 25-35mph without a break. I'm sure some
of those popping gusts exceeded that at times.
